LONDON — A unique campaign at Fanshawe College was initiated by indigenous students to raise public awareness about residential schools.

The Fanshawe College Institute of Indigenous Learning created the idea of giving away masks and historical information cards about two residential schools to the staff of Fanshawe. The two schools displayed were the Mohawk Institute (Mush Hole) and Mount Elgin Industrial Institute. They also asked that people donate funds on Orange Shirt Day to the Woodland Cultural Centre’s residential school restoration project.

Indigenous career consultant at Fanshaw, Brian Malott, oversaw the project.

Graphic Design student Douglas Tullett designed the cards along with the help of the Indigenous Student Association President. Indigenous co-op students did the research for the card details and construction of the masks.
